Canada Day Poster Challenge

  TORONTO, Jan. 30 /CNW/ - The Honourable Hélène Chalifour Scherrer, Minister of Canadian Heritage, today invited students from Ontario to participate in the Canada Day Poster Challenge 2004.

The Canada Day Poster Challenge is open to Canadians aged 18 and under. The theme for 2004 is "Acadia: First Dialogues -- The Meeting of Two Worlds."

"The Canada Day Poster Challenge gives young people an opportunity to express their pride in being Canadian and to celebrate the fact that they are part of an inclusive and diverse society," said Minister Chalifour Scherrer. "Participants will gain an understanding of the creativity and resourcefulness of the early explorers and the First Nations peoples they met, and the courage of the settlers who came to start a new life in North America."

At the close of the contest, Minister Chalifour Scherrer will invite the 13 provincial and territorial finalists to celebrate Canada Day in Ottawa, on July 1, 2004, where they will join thousands of other Canadians on Parliament Hill for Canada’s 137th birthday festivities. The winning artwork will become the official poster for all 2004 Canada Day and "Celebrate Canada!" activities.

Contestants have until February 28, 2004 to submit their design to the Ontario Celebrate Canada Committee.

In 2003, with the support of schools and teachers in Ontario, more than 2250 students from Ontario took part in the Canada Day Poster Challenge.

First held in 1987, the Canada Day Poster Challenge has become one of the Department of Canadian Heritage’s most popular programs. Official partners of the Canada Day Poster Challenge 2004 include the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Parks Canada, Trans Canada Trail, the Royal Canadian Mint, and the Canadian Museum of Civilization.
